It's A Wonderful Life

I just watched my favorite movie (excluding The Matrix Trilogy) again and it was as good as ever. Frank Capra also cast many blacks in this 1946 film, including Annie as Bailey's maid (those were the only roles blacks could get back then). Mr. Gower would have been arrested for child abuse today for injuring George's ear. Harry Bailey would have been charged with sexual harassment for slapping Annie on her behind. Donna Reed shouting upstairs to her mother, "he is making passionate love to me.." was pretty racy for that time. But let's get to the real question:

Can anyone out there tell us the plant Zuzu's petals came from? And Googling it will take some real research. A big prize for the first right answer.
